I have been back to running now for 5 weeks so I thought I would do a little update on how I am getting on.
I started the first couple of weeks by myself but by week 3 I had recruited my friend to run with me and I am finding is so much better to get motivated having someone to go with.
We have been running Monday, Wednesday and Friday which has been working well around our families and anything else we have going on.
At the end of week 5 we had our longest run yet which was 20 minutes non stop running which we found hard but we managed it so we were very proud of ourselves :).
I am feeling so much better in myself and am so glad to be back to my running and can’t wait to make it to 10k which I never quite made it to 10k last time as I fell pregnant and didn’t carry on.
We are now on week 6 and have done day 1 today which went well. We did 5 min run, 3 min walk, 8 min run, walk 3 min then 5 min run with a 5 min warm up and cool down walk.
I am going to try and update every week with how we get on and what runs we have done in the week. I am also hoping to enter us in a 10k race later on in the year and when we are up to 5k in a couple of weeks I am going to start the parkrun again on a Saturday morning as I used to really enjoy this 🙂
So that is where we are up to, thank you for reading.
